New Orleans Music Legend, Fats Domino passed away October 24th, 2017 in his home in Harvey, Louisiana. Having personally lived in New Orleans, I experienced the impact his music had on the local music scene more than 50 years after the apex of his fame. The city will pay tribute to him by holding a Second Line Parade on November 1st.
Below are links to some of the obituaries that I personally enjoyed reading. And for Lagniappe, I have also included the link to one of my favorite Fats Domino songs.
